4114.0 HIV/AIDS & Health Disparities

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 10:30 AM
As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to the disparities associated with HIV infection, testing, prevention, and treatment in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to disparities and HIV. The section identified this area as a priority, as disparities continue to persist in the populations HIV affects. With the support of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, this session will share innovative approaches to HIV-related disparities in their identification and methods to overcome.
Session Objectives: Identify disparities in HIV infection, prevention, and treatment Discuss measurement of HIV-related disparities Describe programmatic efforts to overcome HIV-related disparities
